After the eventful morning I grabbed a sandwich at this
small campus store and went on a supermarket tour with the International group
along with the woman from Columbia. On the trip I talked with a few German
students who were in Wales to practice their English. After walking a few miles
around town ...

Afterwards, we had lunch at Anne's Tearoom which was the most amazing meal we've had thus far (tomato soup and cheesy garlic bread). Overall, it was a wonderful day! The weather was beautiful and it was only a one and a half hour coach ride from Edge Hill to ...

Back in Caernarfon we had to attend to the basics of laundry as we were running out of clothes, well clean ones anyway. The domestic goddesses, Cheryl & Julie took over the 4 machines & 3 dryers to manage the team getting through their loads. I took 3 trips back to the motel room to hang quick dry garments that ...
Left our rabbit warren of a hotel with no lifts & lots of stairs & small rooms. We had to lug our bags up and then down flights of stairs and you could easily get lost in the maze of corridors. The room was small with barely room to open our our bags. Although small it was nice to not have to step into a bath to have a shower.

The tour guide was a charismatic red head girl from Bristol and on the tour we had eleven females and no males at all, unless you count Drew the bus driver. There were two older Austrian ladies travelling together, one Italian girl, one Kiwi girl and six other young Australians of which only ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Afon Gwyn Country House Betws-y-Coed
A well positioned, beautifully appointed guest house truly deserving of all the praise in previous reviews. We were looking for something special for a Valentine's break - we were not disappointed. Tim had kindly booked a table at a local restaurant - Ty Gwyn - we enjoyed a fine five course meal for just £30 each, including half a bottle of decent cava.
We stayed for two nights at Afon Gwyn on the first weekend in February. I booked the hotel through the link on the B&B's website (which does not have real-time availability - so you leave your details and the hotel or B&B get back to you later) and Tim, the owner, called me shortly afterwards to confirm the booking. He also asked me if we wanted him to make any restaurant reservations and provided me with plenty of information about the B&B and it's location.
We stayed one night at the Afon Gwyn Country House B&B in the Rupert Suite. Pre-arrival we spoke to the Tim the owner a couple of times and he was pleasant and accommodating (including when we had to change our arrival day).
We have just returned from 3 nights staying at the incredibly lovely Afon Gwyn Country House. We were hoping that the previous reviews were accurate, and to our relief they certainly were!
We decided to pay a little extra for this place we found on the web because it looked so nice and we thought that if it rained all week (we're talking Wales in September) we'd have somewhere comfortable to be. It was WELL worth it. It felt more like staying in a 4-star hotel than a B&B but it still had a warm and friendly B&B atmosphere. We stayed in the Sorrel Suite which was really big with a lovely bathroom. The room and public areas were lovingly furnished - all the soft furnishings had been handmade by the family. Very well equipped too. We were a little worried when we arrived because there were cream carpets everywhere (be prepared to take your shoes off before you go up the cream-carpeted stairs) but it still looked immaculate even after we'd left! I do hope they can keep it this way. Breakfast was delicious and generous and served with a good dollop of humorous chat and quiz questions. Everything was very stylish and Tim and Di were admirably flexible too.
First class place to stay
Even prior to us arriving Tim and Di had booked a restaurant and odered a taxis for us so we knew we had found a caring, attentive place to stay. That level of attention to detail is evident throughout the house which was very tastefully decorated. All suits are on suite, we stayed in the Alice suite which is size of a football field, with bed to match!!!
Breakfast was hearty and full of flavour, nothing was too much trouble, very high recommended for that special weekend away.
best B&B I've stayed in. Having explored most of the English countryside and stayed in typical B&B accommodation, this one rates top of my list. The house was beautiful, very clean, great breakfast and the most friendly helpful owners you could wish to meet. I enquired whether they took permanent lodgers rather than guests as I could have stayed indefinately.......
The area itself breathtakingly beautiful. The walks are fantastic, the locals friendly and the gentle trickle of water that can be heard is so calming, I would have fallen asleep had I sat down for too long.
The best place to stay if you are visiting North Wates.
Enjoy, I did !!!!!!!!
Afon Gwyn is a place where the guests are made to feel at home, because of the attentive, professional and loving way that Di and Tim Pederby operate the house. Nothing is too much trouble for them; you arrive a guest and leave feeling like an old friend. Even the gorgeous Holly the Dog will offer the paw of welcome!
This is a 5* luxury B&B in North Wales. I never thought these exsisted but they do. This place is very well presented, the rooms are cleverly decorated and styled, the hosts are super friendly. What a fantastic place and completely recommended to anyone wanting to try a B&B for a change. I'm converted.
